preventive measures, not less. One of the ways Arkansas Department of Health wants to stay diligent is through wearing of face coverings while out in public.

Pandemic. Tornado. Ice. Snow. Whatever it is - your Benton County Dispatchers still report to work. No one can 'fill in' - these folks are literally irreplaceable. They're the ones on the other end of the phone when we are in a time of panic. 29 individuals keep us safe. They are a vital link between our community and fire, medical, and law enforcement agencies. A huge thank you to those women and men who are the first response in our cry for help.

Wearing a mask during #Covid19ARK? Make sure you’re following the proper guidance from CDC.

🛑 stop touching your face!

😷 Going out in public for ESSENTIAL items? Wear that mask

🧼 Make sure you wash that thing after you return home.

👃 Mask should cover your nose and mouth. Otherwise, it’s really just a fashion statement + not protecting you.

👍🏻Wearing a mask is a recommendation from the CDC. It is not a mandate.
